Mystic River

Clint Eastwood is pushing 85 and still a player in Hollywood. I haven't yet seen American Sniper, but I'm impressed to see he can still annoy all the right people. For our Saturday movie date this week here's an Eastwood movie - produced, directed and indeed scored by Clint - that I'm fond of. It won Sean Penn and Tim Robbins the 2003 Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor Oscars, the first time a movie had won both since Ben Hur.

Steyn's Song of the Week

It Had To Be You

ImageA decade after Frank Sinatra recorded "It Had To Be You", it turned up in the blockbuster romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally. There's a lot of songs in the film - Ella and Louis, Allman Brothers, Ray Charles...

Steyn's Song of the Week

After You've Gone

ImageFrank Sinatra's last studio solo album was recorded in 1984. Thereafter, there would only be live albums and celebrity duets.
